I get to tell stories for a living. Not only that, I get to hold the stories of healers and transformation professionals who better the world, one client and one program at a time.
It’s an honor to support the therapists and entrepreneurs who need anything from a creative ally to an editor to a “second pair of eyes” to a writer who can translate their vision into words.
My favorite thing about these kind words from clients? How often the word “magic” appears! Let’s talk about how I can support you and help you make some magic of your own.
Writing & Storytelling Coaching
Colleen Kradel, LCSW, Be Well Betterment Counseling Services
While working with Marisa, I have learned she has many gifts. She’s a brilliant storyteller herself and she’s a wonderful story holder as well. She listens, holds space for my stories, and helps me to communicate to my audience.
Because I’m a therapist, telling my own story is a lot harder than I thought it would be, but Marisa helps me through the process. Editing my work, coaching me through a piece – it all gives me the confidence to share and be seen. From the roughest of first drafts to the final product, she adds her touch of magic to the page.
Marisa also helped me with my website copy. She coached me through figuring out who my niche client is and how to speak directly to them. I was really struggling to write my own copy. Having an objective person write it for me not only saved me time but I think she was able to see things about my work and about how I connect with my clients that I’m not able to see.
Dr. Lily Zehner, MFT-C, Relationship Therapist & Coach
I had been struggling with the “About” page that I’ve been yearning to have on my website. I wanted to tell a story, my story about why my practice as a professional, as a wife, as a human is so important to me.
I first sent Marisa my two versions of my page so she had a sense for who I was and what I wanted to share. Marisa and I then had an hour call where she helped me get to the heart of my story. After lots of tough moments of questioning my own writing I sent her my draft.
Today I opened up the edits and the nearly final copy. Seeing the formatting alone made me joyful, but then as I read the words I couldn’t help but cry.
My story, the one I’ve desired so deeply to share and tell was right there. I read and re-read it and each time I became happier. This is it, this is what I’ve longed to say all along and, with Marisa’s help, it’s finally come to life. I certainly wrote the content and yet she helped make it shine.
If you ever need support in writing your story (or writing in general), I highly recommend Marisa. I know I will continue to work with her because this process was nothing less than therapeutic in its own right and it helped to remind me that I am a writer. And, even though I may need some support along the way, I am ultimately the storyteller.
Rebecca Wong, LCSW & founder of Connectfulness
Marisa is a dear local friend and the most fantastic writing coach. She knows how I sound and how I think, and sometimes she makes me sound more like me than I do!
When Marisa bring her writing magic, it always helps my business.
Michelle Wahula, Grounded & Growth Counseling
Before I worked with Marisa, I had been sitting on the copy of my website for over a month with a massive case of writer’s block. My business felt like it had so many moving pieces and was struggling to tell its story in a concise and authentic way. Marisa understood both me and my business and pulled all of the pieces together, as if by magic. She has a profound intuitive sense of what is yearning to be said and the wisdom to express it.
Not only do I highly recommend Marisa to anyone who is trying to tell a story, but can’t seem to find the words, I feel as though I have connected to an incredible resource for years to come.
Jeffrey Davis, CEO & founder of Tracking Wonder
Even authors and decent copy writers need perspective on their own copy. Our company needed to rewrite an important document for sponsors and venue organizers, but I simply could not see past my own patterns to improve it.
Marisa took in what I do, absorbed what I wanted to accomplish in a speaking tour, translated its value to the targeted audiences, and within budget and schedule delivered excellent copy. That copy became the basis of a document that gained us sponsors and venues.
Marisa is intuitive, talented, and responsive. If your business needs to translate its message into language that lands with your audience, hire Marisa.
I truly enjoyed every moment of the creative process of working with Marisa. Her initial questionnaire asked me important questions that I had never considered, but that I realized were crucial to the success of delivering the right message on my website.She was so thorough and had me thinking deeply about myself, my business, and how my core values needed to be reflected in my personal message. Our communication was friendly and clear, and her passion and excitement was such a pleasure to work with. She worked tirelessly with me until the copy was just right, and I can’t thank her enough for helping me communicate so eloquently exactly what I wanted to say.
Saundra Goldman, writer, teacher, coach at Creative Mix
Marisa and I accomplished much in a short period of time. She took the time to understand the deeper purpose of my website and blog, however, before drawing on her considerable knowledge and experience to make her recommendations. She made useful, actionable suggestions on the spot and followed up with a clear and comprehensive plan to meet my goals.
In addition to being highly capable, Marisa was a joy to work with. Our sessions were filled with laughter and recognition, as well as a seriousness of purpose.
Eleanora Amendolara, master healer & teacher and founder of the Sacred Center
Marisa has been a complete asset to my work. She is professional, efficient, and very responsive. She is wise beyond her years and understands on deeper levels. She has always helped me to find the right words for even the most subtle concepts.Marisa is a word wizardress. I am very grateful to have her on my team.
